Cooperative Housing Symposium Zurich

September 22 - September 23

The global co-operative housing movement is meeting in Zurich, Switzerland.

With the new two-yearly Cooperative Housing Symposium, organisers want to establish a regular event specifically for housing co-operatives from around the world. By meeting and exchanging knowledge, they want to strengthen the network of international housing co-operatives and their peers to collectively address the multiple challenges in the housing market. They hope their movement can translate into action the aspirations for sustainable cities and communities found within the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

Main Topics of this Year’s Symposium

  • #Housing2030: Is co-operative housing the key to decent, adequate, affordable and healthy housing for all?
  • Developing the Co-operative Toolbox: What do we need to grow our movement?
  • Community Engagement for Sustainability: Inspiring projects from Spain, Colombia, Switzerland and Thailand.
  • Unlocking Co-operation for a More Sustainable and Equitable Future: Panel discussion with experts from around the world.
